Custom Table Revealed

Custom Walnut Bookmatch Dining Room Table by Geoffrey Warner Studio
During this past December, Geoff feverishly worked on a new table design in order to deliver a client’s Christmas Table in time for the holiday dinner!

Constructing the table base from resilient ash wood, Geoff created a new design for the table “knees.”  Geoff said, ” no matter how many projects I complete, the excitement of taking a drawing and making it come to life is a thrill!”

Our Connecticut clients chose walnut bookmatched boards for the table top.  Geoff’s crew applied a natural tung oil to bring out the beautiful grain and provide protection to the live edge wood. This video shows the transformation:

The image below shows Geoff assembling the live edge Christmas table as the new owners stand by to help with the flip and positioning.  The table measures 92″ x 48″ x 30″.

These live edge walnut boards provide everyone at the table with a unique view into the tree's interior.

As we move into February, now is the best season to consider a custom dining room, sofa or coffee table.  Geoff will work closely with you to capture your ideas into a one-a-kind design.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in our handcrafted furniture.

Happy New Year from Stonington, Maine!

Geoff Builds Expandable Dining Room Table

Posted on: June 11th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Geoff’s Latest Furniture Design:  Last week Geoffrey Warner Studio completed a large Dining Room Table. This stunning cherry table has a 54″ diameter and when the 3 leaves are inserted, the table expands to 90″.

This custom wooden table will seat 6 to 12.  Owl Chairs in cherry are also being made to accompany the table.   Here’s a brief video of Geoff finishing the table: http://youtu.be/Edr0p9mOV10

Inspiration for the  tables base stems from nature and the art nouveau design period from over 100 years ago. The sawn knees and legs are hand-shaped round and hard edged in order to reveal a graceful flow of form, enhanced by the play of  light and shadow.

These are details that Geoff has refined and grown fond of  over the years, and now refers to as part of his design vocabulary.

 

Do you have a furniture wish list?  Geoff is now accepting new commissions.

Looking Ahead….Mark your calendar for the first Stonington Galleries First Friday, July 5th. GW Studio will host a grand event with music…more details coming soon.

As always, thank you for your interest in our custom & Owl Furniture.
